Question Time: MMM, 20 April 2016



The Consumer Protection Act states that a person must not directly or indirectly promote, or knowingly join, enter or participate in a Pyramid Scheme. This has become more topical as Pyramid Schemes in general and the TRIPLE M Investment Scheme in particular continue to make news headlines. The future of MMM is hanging in the balance following its collapse in Russia where it is believed to have its roots. Meanwhile the Hawks with support from Crime Intelligence Police Officers have launched an investigation on the Investment Scheme.

  1. MMM诈骗案主犯再推新“金字塔方案”
    2015年4月到2016年7月,MMM造成中国区几百万人受骗,资金金额估计2000亿之多,远远大于e租宝的受灾人数和金额!
      俄罗斯人谢尔盖·马夫罗季上世纪90年代利用“金字塔”式投资返还方案吸引投资,“金字塔”崩塌之后,数百万人血本无归,他本人也一度沦为阶下囚。

      马夫罗季11日宣布推出新“金字塔方案”,声称投资者可得到高额回报。昔日巨骗依然具有吸引力,不少人对他的新方案感兴趣,表示愿意再次尝试。

      马夫罗季11日通过个人博客,以视频方式介绍一种新的“金字塔方案”,投资者每月至少可以获得两成投资额的回报。

      马夫罗季在视频中说:“这是一种"金字塔方案",没什么投资能获得这样的回报。”

      按马夫罗季说法,基于新方案,多数投资者可以每月收益20%,养老金领取者和残疾人则可每月获得高达30%的收益。

      “MMM(股份公司)证明,这种方案可以成功,”马夫罗季提到上世纪90年代的MMM公司“金字塔”金融欺诈案。

      MMM欺诈案堪称俄罗斯史上最大金融诈骗案。按俄罗斯新闻社估算,马夫罗季三兄弟创建的MMM公司骗走500万名投资者资金,牟利达15亿美元。

      然而,莫斯科回声广播电台11日就马夫罗季新方案所做的电话民调显示,大约四分之一受访者表示愿意尝试这种投资,有人还在马夫罗季的博客留言。

      现年55岁的马夫罗季说,他希望今年能吸引多至10万名投资者,明年达到100万。

      马夫罗季兄弟三人,以家族姓氏首字母为名,1994年2月创立MMM股份公司,注册资金仅为10万卢布(当时约合1000美元)。

      MMM公司在俄罗斯全国几乎所有知名媒体投放广告,以高投资回报为诱饵,吸引投资者。MMM公司当年发行原始股价格为每股1000卢布(当时约合10美元),4个月后,每股价格已经炒到3万多卢布。

      俄罗斯政府19994年7月发表声明,质疑MMM承诺的高额回报,宣布不保证投资这家公司的安全性。MMM公司股价随后急剧下跌,“金字塔”崩溃,公司1997年最终破产。投资者试图兑现收益时发现,他们已经血本无归。 马夫罗季1994年8月涉嫌偷税漏税遭拘留,10月获释,次月参加国家杜马补选,当选议员。

      MMM骗局案发后,马夫罗季一度逃亡,受到国际刑警通缉,2003年被捕。法庭裁定,马夫罗季窃取投资者巨额资金,偷税、伪造文件和大规模欺诈等罪名成立。服刑4年半后,马夫罗季获释。

      受上起案件影响,偿清投资者债务前,马夫罗季本人不能从事股票交易,也不能离开俄罗斯。

      “你们都知道我的财务状况,”马夫罗季说,“我一根指头也不会碰钱,我只是指一条道。”

      在几个视频信息中,马夫罗季形容新方案为一种“高度组织化的金融社会网络”,投资者需要自行设立俄罗斯网络银行WebMoney账户,彼此之间通过一种方式交易资金。

      俄罗斯金融调查部门和消费者权益监督机构人员说,他们将要求检察官迅速采取行动,遏制这种新型“庞氏骗局”。

  2. Financial slavery has kept us bound for so long. The banks charges people high interest rates and the authorities have never deemed it necessary to investigate this kind of fraud. The banks charges you for every transaction and nobody is asking them questions. And now a financial empowerment program has been established to liberate people from the grip of financial hardship and the banks are now sponsoring the media and other government agencies to discredit it. For as long as the people stand together as one MMM will survive all these storms. Sergey Marvrodi does not have any link with people's money, he only created a platform for members to send money to each other freely. Why are the authorities not looking at the bright side of things? I am a participant of MMM and i can confidently say that MMM has helped me put food on my table. it has helped me pay my kids school fees. it has helped me start a restaurant and i am already getting prepared to start a catfish breeding business in just a few days. I think there are tremendous opportunities being part of MMM.

  3. INQUIRE INTO WORLD OF REAL POSITIVE CHANGE

  4. nonesence!!! i would rather lose my money with MMM than with the banks!!! stay away from MMM and get your citizens Jobs…

  5. Enemies of success that our RSA Government  anything that doesn't benefit him it is illegal he makes us think it bad for us and makeup a story for his defence .

  6. MMM is scam do not trust mavrodi he is a skunk. Do not try it they would steal your money and then block you. They are bunch of fools and theives. They stole all my money. Do not join it. Do not believe this liars on youtube.

  10. The participants have not complained, its beneffiting us jobless people.

  11. With the volume of patronizers in this scheme, they will definitely out stage any government that will stop the scheme from continuity. Put in your money and bear the brunt if it goes down and no one will approach the government for any refunds. That should be the advice from the government.

  12. GOD PASS DEVIL IN ANY FORM, OUR EVIL GOVERNMENT WHO SEEM PROTECTING US BUT ARE KILLING US FOR THEIR SELFISH INTEREST SHALL FAIL.

  13. one word for mmm. awesome. Nigerian

  14. we provide help with our spare money not our little income..so thi guy shuld shut up…check out what banks make with our money.

  15. The difference between theft and borrowing is will and intent.

    What's the criminal intent in borrowing money from your neighbour and when he needs money you give him after making more money on top of it?

    If you aim to help you will be helped

    Look, no one will need banks soon. Finish. We'll just help each other.

  16. they are not reluctant. the best word to use is "they are enjoying it" so they can't come to you. :-)

  17. in the beginning, they said it's an ongoing investigation but close to the end of the show, they placed verdict already, labeling it as a scam, pyramid and pozi scheme. Now that's being two-mouthed
